      Masterworks 6: Mozart, Rachmaninoff

      Star pianist Garrick Ohlsson, one of the world’s foremost interpreters of Rachmaninoff's music, joins the Asheville Symphony for a program featuring two of the Russian composer's concertos. The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini challenges both the soloist and the orchestra and is renowned for its devilish virtuosity and deeply expressive romanticism. The Second Piano Concerto may well be the best-known work for piano and orchestra ever composed, and it radiates with grand romantic melodies and lush orchestration. The concert opens by paying homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself with a performance of his Symphony No. 25, a work known for its rhythmic vitality and stormy character.
